    1. Welcome and Introduction

The President opened the meeting at 19.00. She welcomed the members present and introduced the Committee (see later for complete list).

    1. Minutes of the Previous AGM

The minutes of the 29th AGM were tabled and approved.

    1. President’s Report

The President presented an overview of the previous season’s events:

    • It was the sixth year of online registration for January ski school and this process as well as the lessons themselves were a success. The aperos organised after the school on both Saturdays and Sundays were well attended and appreciated by members and ski instructors alike. The opening weekend aperos were particularly succesful and will be continued in 2016.

    • The fondue evening at SihlCity in December 2014.

    • March ski school

    • Summer Aperos in May and July

    1. Swiss-Ski

Membership was canceled in the period as no tangible benefits were available or realised by the club.

    1. Financial Report

The Auditor’s report and 2016 budget was presented and explained by the Treasurer. Brian Sparks audited the accounts as in previous years. Net income for the period was CHF7,920 This was a better result than budget primarily due to there being no Davos weekend in 2015.

Next year’s budget was discussed by The Treasurer, copies were tabled at the meeting.

The proposal for FY16 is to reduce the cash reserve.

    1. Year ahead

As in the prior year, the online registration for the ski school will continue. An apero has been organised immediately following the AGM to address questions people might have about the ski school, with a representative from the ski school present.

Expected events for this year are:

    • Fondue – 4th December 2015 – Felsenegg

    • January ski school – with aperos expected on each of the weekends.

    • March ski school – weekends of 12 and 19 March 2016. Registration will open in February 2016.

    • Annual Davos visit – provisionally expected to be 9th April.

    • Summer apero(s) – date(s) to be confirmed
